Thomas C's Experience

Experience description:   

I was in a large spherical, domed, room, with dim light. I was surrounded by many others, and felt like we all were sharing similar experiences. A small table protruded the complete distance around the room, about halfway down the wall, to my desired height. On the table sat a sphere, or a bubble, in front of myself, and many more separated by about 6 inches of space between them, completely around the room. Other people stood in front of their bubbles, as did I. I looked into my sphere, and a movie began to play in the bubble. I watched it in its entirety, and felt that I had to make a choice. there were other people consulting me, and I decided to take this life.

I have had this memory for as long as I can remember, and though it is foggy, I can still remember most of the detail. I have found throughout my life I have come across certain events, that remind me of the movie I watched before I choose this life. I can vaguely remember the actual outside of the dome, but I remember looking upon the Life house from outside, and I can compare it to the I-max theaters, from the outside, and in.

The actual choice of living my life was not a hard decision, but I remember watching it from beginning (birth), to end (death). I remember the actual journey being, just a short trip, with full intentions of returning shortly. I felt that the choice I made was a great opportunity for me to learn, and become wiser.
